One of my students is having the attached error. He can open and upload the genome in DNAMAster but he is trying to export it even he gets that error. Somehow the Query database is corrupted. Any ideas?

Try the following things, one may do the trick. If not send it to me and I will try to make it work.
At the feature table, go to the left sequence tab. Once in the window, above the sequence, click on the button "raw".

Recreate your documentation. Go to documentation, the click on recreate.

Save the file as a new name and see if it works. If you do need my help, what is he trying to export?
